Contacting Students in Teams


Contacting students or adding students to groups/teams from your employee account is possible, however students must be added as Contacts prior to being visible in the Teams application. This is due to the employee and student accounts being on separate domains at AACC.

Follow the instructions below to add students as contacts.
